Anyone can be better than you... But what makes you be unique are not your skills but creation.... You sound different, your tone, your tempo etc... that’s why it’s difficult to make comparisons on guitar players basing only in the skill..

If you think he a prodigy you need to check out Taj Farrant. He's from Australia about 11 or 12 and unbelievable. Can write his own music. This guy you had on was a good copy player. Then he grew into do his own music. Taj is already doing his own music.

Mcrocklin was in a band called bad4good and they released an album when he was 13 years old!!! He also released a solo album around that time also.

You are joking right? Do u know what? Vai made a band called Bad4Good n Thomas play as main guitarist. He is really young when the band formed. Maybe 13 or 14yo. Vai is his mentor n friend. Please dont underestimate someone if u really dont know about him

You might’ve heard of her already but if you haven’t, check out Li-sa-x. She did an amazing cover of Racer X’s Scarified when she was just 8. She’s 16 now and has already jammed together with the likes of Kiko Loureiro. She’s also had the opportunity to sit down for a chat with Paul Reed Smith. She has a youtube channel too so it’d be great to see you guys together in a video. When I clicked on your video, I actually thought it was her here,

McRocklin is so good that all I needed to hear is a few notes to know. The sign is that his streaming setup is set up so well. However. if he sounds that good through Skype being routed through Twitch, how does he sound on a CD?

Holy crap, I was on the RAID from Herman's Twitch stream the other night and I watched you for a while, but I had no idea that you were the kid in the Steve Vai video that I used to watch so much in the 90s. That's so cool, and I didn't even know you are a fellow Brit. I am definitely gonna sub to you.

I was at the gig in Newcastle (not sure the year, sorry, over 30 years ago), it was at The Mayfair (no longer exists) First a support band, then some McLaughlin, then Ozzy. Ozzy's band at the time was Geezer Butler, Bill Ward, Randy Costello, and ofc Ozzy. After the gig, me and 2 friends waited around the back of the hall for Ozzy to get autographs (and share a joint with Ozzy) with a bunch of others. I remember my friend waiting for Bill Ward (who he idolized) and waving the guy out in his car not realising it was him. We all laughed at that. Somebody asked "that kid Mclaughlin is cool", or words to that effect, to which Ozzy said "he's a spoiled little shit". Mind you, when we asked about Sabbath or Dio or Toni Iommi, Ozzy wasnt nice about them either. Maybe he was just tired and having a bad day. Gig itself was good though, and Mclaughlin was damn skilled for a kid.
